I think I know a lot of you by your handles. Kinda got most of the things on my bowhunting bucket list to the point I am content to move on down a very long and interesting trail. Now switched to the Longrifles, and all the artforms involved there. Might be writing soon for NMLRA, a dream in it's own, have been involved in Black Powder since I was kid. I glanced through here pretty thoroughly and love everything I See and read. Feel I might have something to offer. First off would be to offer the first piece of anything you do will end up being someone in your family's most valuable piece of family history long after you are 'another trail". I've got stuff here 5 generations old now and still in use every open season. In one way you will be on the hunt with them long after your time THAT is real nice to think about Downloaded about 2500 photos taken over the last ten years, two days ago, be very happy to share some of them. Most of them taken to support DIY projects. The really good photos aren't mine My work, his photos I'm goona nap for a while, the coyotes were howling a bit ago right behind the house, and the turkeys are gobbling now across the creek. Always go to one of the decks before light, depending of course on how I dressed for the nap. Front deck faces the road, Jammies. Back deck doesn't, au naturel
Give just a little time, have got to get my head wrapped around how to get photos where I need them to be electronically??
Usta be able to do..pretty sure I can learn it again. By the way you couple characters up there, You like thick sliced bacon on stick over the coals, ontop sour dough biskits? I think we'll get along just fine, thanks. For now, keep the fire going til I get back with the proof........

Last evening I stood by(only to observe..and smile) as My ten year old grandson started the skinning of a very young raccoon who met an untimely demise. He started with tears in his eyes, told him only 'been there done that, I would have been surprised if you hadn't." Then I watched as he skinned with the precision of a surgeon. My wife took the photos. I realized my grandson is fully capable of teaching an advance level course on Brain Tanning Furs and hides. He does a lot of our 'work' ...with stone tools I really do try to hide my pride....
